Marie Stopes abortion clinic: Call for investigation


The Northern Ireland Attorney General has called for a Stormont investigation into the opening of the first private clinic in Belfast to offer abortions.

John Larkin's request comes on the day the Marie Stopes clinic opened.

It has said it will provide terminations within NI's current legal framework - abortions are not illegal but are very strictly controlled.

But up to 50 people from a range of religious denominations are protesting.
